Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Title: 无糖的咖啡
Artist: 杨乐
Link: https://youtu.be/T8awA80x-XY
Translation: https://www.notion.so/ef6127a3248d475b966584daacb7f288

Chinese lyrics

就这样一天天
就这样抽着烟
我燃烧着时间
一年一年

不再去想昨天
今天很快是从前
也不再等明天
过着今天

读每天的体会
唱每天的喜与悲
喝一杯无糖的咖啡
品出许多的滋味

也许有眼泪
也许要后悔
也许这样才完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

就这样一天天
就这样发着呆
我享受着时间
一年一年

来不及等昨天
今天很快是从前
也来不及等明天
过了今天

这一刻的体会
这一刻的喜与悲
这一杯无糖的咖啡
品出更多的滋味

因为有眼泪
因为要后悔
因为这样叫完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

Chinese lyrics

我想应该静下来想一些话
我想应该静下来走一段路
我想应该静下来看一本书
我只想静下来反省自己

我想应该静下来睡一个觉
我想应该静下来想一个人
我想静下来忘掉那些事情
我只想静下来反省自己

当一切都开始静下来的时候
静的可以让我听到平和安静的心跳
静的象云
静的象空气
静静的我开始渐渐的适应

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

Title: 虫的触角。

Translation: https://www.notion.so/b956edac59c14645b6abe10f7de2ae3e

Chinese lyrics

云儿 就像吟游诗人
唱着风的歌,吐着雨的口水
鸟儿 忘记了怎么飞
反正在笼中不累,可以安睡

关上手机,开启虫的触角
让我们感知这世界吧

现在 关上你的朋友圈
闭上你的眼睛 还有嘴
耳朵 可以探测方向
让我们逐渐 去寻觅远方

驯鹿是吃那苔藓的啊
它从森林中出不来呀

信息多的像空中的碳(氧化合物)
我是否运行着太多感官?
邀请“静静”来个约会吧
用虫的触角与她交谈

书上的墨比屏幕更深
现场的音乐比耳机更真
相见后时间给我可以吗?
回家后再低头联络吧

用虫的触角去遥望吧
用虫的触角去感知这世界,好吗? 呵呵

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
Next week is the test, textbook hasn’t even been touched
Will see advisor tomorrow to submit thesis, at worst you won’t sleep tonight
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can definitely diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Pile up for a month, no more clean clothes to wear
Room isn’t inhabitable by humans, no place to put your feet
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

End of the month, rent hasn’t been paid, should be fined for (late) water and electricity (bill)
Don’t want to make food, don’t want to bathe, can’t stop (watching) TV shows
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

Chinese lyrics

闹钟响了好几遍了你怎么不起床呢
你说再睡个五分钟可已经一钟头了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一礼拜的工作可是你一拖再拖
领导急了老板怒了可你还在玩微博
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
下礼拜就要考试了课本还从没碰过
明天见导师交论文大不了今晚不睡了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以确切诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

攒了一个月了没有干净衣服能穿了
房间不是人类住的双脚都没地方搁
根据您的临床表现
我们可以初步诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

月底了房租还没交水电费该罚款了
不想做饭不想洗澡电视剧停不下了
根据您的临床表现
我们可以再次诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

对于这个现代人类医学难关
我们目前尚无有效治疗手段
明日复明日每天浪费时间我只能
断掉你WIFI
拔掉你网线
扔掉你手机
关掉朋友圈
现在必须给我开始

今天要是干不完就不给你吃饭
你又胖了说要去健身房可整天躺着
这顿不算下顿再说不吃饱怎么减肥呢
根据您的临床表现
我们可以完全诊断
您是晚期拖延症患者

我还有救吗
您是晚期拖延症患者
你问我我问谁呢
我们都是晚期拖延症患者

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Chinese lyrics

突然很想 不去上班
发一发呆 偷一点懒
但是又要 问我自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

梦想总是 绕一个圈
却还是要 回到原点
是不是我
还需要再坚强一点

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我要怎么 画出未来

我只剩下 空空的口袋
我只好在 原地发呆
这个世界 变化的太快
我想不明白

我真的没时间 没时间 吃一顿早餐
我没时间 没时间 去锻炼锻炼
我没时间 没时间 逛一逛商店
我没时间 没时间 我真的没有时间

我没时间 没时间 谈一谈恋爱
我没时间 没时间 常回家看看
我没时间 没时间 我有一点烦
为什么总是 没有时间

我越来越 怀念从前
无忧无虑 美好童年
但是又要 告诉自己
是不是要 坚强一点

Open the box, leisurely, vestiges of the past
Stacks of ticket stubs, beautifully aged
From a show that played on some day, some month, some year
A movie from the last meeting before farewell
The longing for warmth, it’s all printed here

This is my hoarding complex
Since I can’t live in the moment, might as well collect memories
It feels ridiculous, I want to keep everything, afraid of losing it all at once
Those printed words are blurred with age
Just like we will become blurred with age
It's alright, this is the best evidence of our existence

Find that living is not at all easy, it’s very hard to pause the gears
This kind of compulsive hoarding can be fun to play with, it’s just for killing time
Find that living is a big problem, happiness is even harder
This kind of compulsive hoarding lets you reflect on yourself, where you stand

So I sorted out all the wrinkled things
Those things that look like junk, but have more meaning because of my point of view
Thank you for your company, you picked up my worn-out heart
This kind of compulsive hoarding, how long can I keep it up?
Those messy past incidents, still need to box them up

Title: 搜集癖
Artist: Nana高娜娜
Link: https://youtu.be/KvfNi6I8gxw
Translation: https://www.notion.so/d473c9fdb4ce4546bf1a8e222f7bb2bc

Chinese lyrics

打开盒子,慢条斯理,走过的痕迹
票根一张一张,旧得很美丽
是某天某月某年还有的那出戏
是最后一次道别相约的电影
渴望温度的动机 都印在这里

这是我的搜集癖
既然无法活在当下,那就这样珍藏回忆
想来也好笑,什么都要留着,怕一下子就失去
那些印着的字迹模糊不清
就像是我们 也会模糊不清
也好,这是存在的最好证明

发现活着真不容易,齿轮很难暂停
这样的搜集癖 还能玩玩游戏,无聊而已
发现活着是大问题,快乐更不容易
这样的搜集癖 还能看看自己 活在哪里

于是我整理好了 所有皱褶的东西
那些被视为破烂 却因为眼光更具有意义
谢谢你曾经的同行,拾起我破烂的心
这样的搜集癖 还能持续多久下去
那些凌乱的过去 还是要找个盒子装进去

Old wine glass, old toy, old cologne
Old flame, old emotional wounds, old happiness
Old me, old scents, old heart beats
Old feelings that are lost

Old wine glass, that red wine’s flavor has dispersed
Old flame and her new flame are sleeping together
Old me can perceive their new joy
Old feelings, let them age

Old hunting cap, still haven’t thrown it away
Sitting in my wardrobe like a trap
Every second and every minute reminding me to ask how you’re doing
Old razor blade, still haven’t thrown it away
Fixed into place in the bathroom like a talisman
Every several minutes and several seconds, enter a number only to then delete it, so pointless

Old hunting cap, I threw it out
Its place in my wardrobe has been taken up by my cat
Every instant guarding my heart, don’t care how you’re doing now
Old razor blade, I threw it out
Looking in the bathroom mirror, smile at myself
Every several minutes and several seconds, phone rings and then disconnects, doesn't bother me at all

Chinese lyrics

旧杯,旧玩具,旧香水
旧爱,旧伤感,旧愉快
旧人,旧味道,旧心跳
旧情 已没有谁知道

旧杯,那红酒散了味
旧爱 和新欢在同睡
旧人 听得见新人笑
旧情,就快让它发酵

旧了的鸭舌帽,还没有丢掉
在衣柜里寄居着像一个圈套
每分每秒 提醒我的心想 问问你现在好不好
旧了的剃须刀 还没有丢掉
在洗手间定格 就像一个符号
几分几秒,电话号码输入 又删掉多没必要

旧了的鸭舌帽,我把它丢掉
在衣柜里寄居的变成我的猫
分分秒秒 守住我的心脏,不管你现在好不好
旧了的剃须刀,我把它丢掉
在洗手间镜子 对着自己微笑
几分几秒,电话铃声响起 又挂掉都不重要

You live on the fourth floor, I live on the third
Every day I hear you renovating
Monday to the weekend, no rest at all
Neighbors all moved away

I heard after he left
You never wanted to venture outside again
Electric drill head, drill painfully through your heart
Mistakenly believe that he’ll return after the renovation

Unfortunately
His love was worn down by years of neglect
His heart was long ago stolen away by time
After whitewashing
It’s not enough to hide the faded red

However
Your hate can’t be extinguished
Building up a tower to lay siege to love
The master of self-deception
Lives in your memories and refuses to leave
Unable to leave

我住四楼,你住三楼
每天听到 你在装修
周一到周末,全年无休
邻居都搬走

听说因为 他离开后
你再不愿 出去走走
电钻钻头 钻得心痛
以为翻新他就回头

可惜啊
他的爱年久失修
心早被时间偷走
粉刷以后
掩不住褪色的红

可是啊
你的恨无药可救
筑起围爱的城楼
自欺的祸首
是活在回忆不肯走
不能走

He’s older than her by 3 years
She loudly calls him Old Ghost
They play guitars around the bonfire
Singing that time flows like water

He was once a big drinker
She was once young and lovely
They left home in their twenties
To be heartbroken in a faraway place

They sing that spring wind is like the sea
And sing their dreams for the future
They sing about cherishing each other
And sing about their desire to have children

They sing love songs until morning’s light
And sing about challenging yourself while you’re young
They sing that struggle is short-lived
And sing that when they’re rich and upstanding they’ll return home

He floats through factory jobs
She sells smiles in small stores
Their lives are like rice straws, no one else to rely on
But they embrace every day

He was once destitute and down on his luck
She was once an unreasonable brat
Every day they split up, stubbornly bicker
Neither asks for forgiveness

They sing that life is so fickle
And sing about the disappointment towards reality
They sing about pain and tears
And sing that maybe it’s better to end the show

They about spring grass becoming yellow in autumn
And sing about that autumn yellow turning into summer coolness
They sing about life being so boring
And sing about getting a new house next year

Life goes on
There was no miracle
They didn’t get rich
Always ordinary, then they grew old

He doesn’t sigh as much
She’s not anxious anymore
They count wrinkles and genuine happiness
Finally start to look back

They sing about how crazy those years were
And sing about that young guy, that dumb gal
They sing that life is so hard
And sing that this struggle was so glorious

They sing about how weddings are so stupid
And sing about those long-standing grudges
They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

They sing if there’s another life
They’d like to give it another go

Chinese lyrics

他比她大三岁
她喊他叫老鬼
他们抱着吉他围着火堆
唱往事如水

他曾千杯不醉
她曾青春貌美
他们二十几岁离开家
去天涯心碎

他们唱春风如海洋
又唱对未来的幻想
他们唱彼此要珍惜
又唱生孩子的愿望

他们唱情歌到天亮
又唱趁年轻要敢闯
他们唱艰苦很短暂
又唱富贵就还乡

他在工厂飘摇
她在小店卖笑
他们生如稻草,无依无靠
却每天拥抱

他曾穷困潦倒
她曾无理取闹
他们每天分手,倔强争吵
都不肯求饶

他们唱人生太无常
又唱对现实的绝望
他们唱痛苦泪涟涟
又唱还不如就散场

他们唱春草变秋黄
又唱那秋黄换夏凉
他们唱日子太无聊
又唱明年换新房

生活还在继续
从来没有奇迹
他们没有发财
依然平凡就老去

他也少了叹息
她也不再着急
他们数着皱纹,心生欢喜
终于开始回忆

他们唱当年多疯狂
又唱那少年傻姑娘
他们唱一生太辛苦
又唱这辛苦多风光

他们唱婚礼多窝囊
又唱那陈年老旧账
他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟

他们唱如果有来生
还愿意再来一趟

Let me be a stupid person
Avoid the conflict between knowledge and privilege
Let me be a lowlife
Trade my toil with capitalists to get the youth I deserve

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Students buying breakfast cursing next to me
Boring news sliding under fingertips
I’m thinking of my middle class mom and dad

"After you grow up, you must be an educated person
Marry a good husband, live a happy life"
Everyone wants to be a person of means
But who will paint things, who will wipe floors
Who will be the wretched poor beneath our feet?

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Homeless people on the side of the road speaking to themselves
A filthy dog is sizing me up
I’m thinking of my mom and dad who have struggled their entire lives

让我做一个愚蠢的人
避免知识和权力之间的矛盾
让我做一个低贱的人
用劳碌向资本家交换应得的青春

刚下班的清晨骑车回家
买早餐的学生在我旁边说脏话
无聊的新闻在指尖滑
我想起我那 中产阶级的爸爸妈妈

「你长大以后 要做个读书人
嫁个好老公,过幸福的一生」
大家都想要 做个有钱人
那谁来刷油漆,谁来擦地板
谁来当他们脚底下的穷困

刚下班的凌晨骑车回家
没有家的人在路边对自己说话
一只脏兮兮的狗在打量我
我想起我那 辛苦了一生的爸爸妈妈

Did your mom force you to marry?
Did your mom force you to marry?
If your mom didn’t force you
Why are you forcing yourself, forcing yourself?

Miss Ding is 28 this year
Bright and joyful, lovely as a flower
The house she likes isn’t big
Just wants a small cozy home

Spring festival comes, company vacation
Her mom makes prawns braised in oil
But she’s a little afraid
Afraid her mom will ask, do you have a boyfriend?

Mr Wang is 28 this year
Started a software business with partners
He works day and night, can’t ever go home
No choice but to work overtime banging out code

Spring festival comes, company vacation
His mom makes bullfrog boiled in Szechwan chili oil
But he’s a little afraid
Afraid his mom will ask, do you have a girlfriend?

丁小姐今年28
神清气爽,貌美如花
喜欢的房子并不大
只想要一个小小的家

春节来了,单位放假
她妈做的油焖大虾
可是她的心里有点害怕
怕她妈问她,男朋友呢?

王先生今年28
联合创业,软件开发
他没日没夜,不能回家
只能在公司加班敲代码

春节来了,单位放假
他妈做的水煮牛蛙
可是他的心里有点害怕
怕他妈问他,女朋友呢?

Oh~oh~
This is a sad song
Oh~this is a sad song

Miss Wang turned 31
When her friends see her
They all ask a question:
When do you plan to get married?

But the problem of marriage
Isn’t something she can decide on by herself
She asks her papa, she asks her mama
They both said, you better hurry

Look, look, look at other people, there there there there
Look, look, look look look there there there there

Over-30 artsy girl
Should marry what kind of person?
Shouldn’t she find someone who does art?
This way, they would be fairly compatible?

But artsy boys who do art
Some of them are only into their art
Also, a very small minority of boys who do art
Do art so they can do girls

Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
What’s the point of marrying him?
Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
Damn damn damn damn it

Friends introduce quite a few
Some have cars, some have houses, some have kids
They said you should find one who has money
Let him support your creative efforts

But no rich guys like her
They only want to marry those who can cook
Girls who can’t cook
Can only become the other woman
Artsy girls who can’t cook
Can only be used by them

Damn damn damn damn it
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

This song is a truthful account
If it’s fictional that’s just coincidence
Please don’t take it personally
And then form an online mob to block me

Look, look, look, she can only make stir fried egg and tomato
Look, look, and eat it with instant noodles
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

Title: 大龄文艺女青年之歌

Chinese lyrics

Oh~oh~
这是一首悲伤的歌
Oh~这是一首悲伤的歌

王小姐三十一岁了
朋友们见到了她
都要问一个问题:
你什么时候打算嫁呢?

可是嫁人这一个问题
又不是她一个人 可以决定的
她问她爸爸,她问她妈妈
他们都说,你赶紧的

你看,你看,你看人家,那那那那
你看,你看,你看看看那那那那

大龄文艺女青年
该嫁一个什么样的人呢?
是不是也该找个搞艺术的
这样就比较合适呢?

可是搞艺术的男青年
有一部分只爱他的艺术
还有,极少部分搞艺术的男青年
搞艺术是为了搞姑娘

搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
你嫁给他干什么呢?
搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
奶奶奶奶奶奶的

朋友们介绍了好几个
有车子,房子,和孩子的
他们说你该找个有钱的
让他赞助你搞创作

可是大款都不喜欢她
他们只想娶会做饭的
不会做饭的女青年
只能去当第三者
不会做饭的文艺女青年
只能被他们潜规则

奶奶奶奶奶奶的
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

这一首歌纯属雷同
如有虚构实属巧合
请不要自觉对号入座
然后发动群众封杀我

你看,你看,你看她只会做西红柿炒鸡蛋
你看,你看,还要就着方便面
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

On the way home from work
Became wet and rainy
Slowly walk
Treat it as a stroll in the rain
Lovers holding hands
Avoiding the rain in the station
I don’t have the heart to disturb them
Lower my head and walk over
In their vicinity, time came to a stop
Rainy day became a subtle poem
Looking on as they hail a taxi
My eyes follow the wetness

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

Quietly sit
Idly thinking
Take out my phone and see reflected
The image of myself
Feel a little hapless
Maybe because
The wind has been blowing the whole time
Waited for a rather long time
Feel a little embarrassed
Passerby glances at me
Continues walking forward
Rain suddenly fell hard, then suddenly fell softly
I’m a little anxious but also helpless

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Night becomes ever colder, I rub my hands
Want to get some warmth, but it’s no use
I’m even getting a bit pissed off
While sighing, I lift my head
Faintly see hope coming closer
Couldn’t help but dash into the rain
A small pleasant surprise after disappointment
Leave misfortune in the mud
Lean against the window zoning out
Blurred vision, how relaxing
Stop for a while, pass a station
Some time passes, go towards the next station
Warm last train
Other than the driver, there’s only me in the car
Lazily hum a song
It feels like I’m the only one left in this world

Translation: https://www.notion.so/437bd14c8b254fa2b2366bfff2bff4a9

Chinese lyrics

下班的路
变得湿漉
慢慢走
当是雨中散步
牵手的情侣
在站台躲雨
不忍心打搅
低头走过去
时间 在他们周围静止
雨天 变成微妙的小诗
看着 他们拦下的士
我的眼睛跟着潮湿

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

安静坐着
随便想着
掏出手机我看到反射
出的那个我
有些许狼狈
可能是因为
风一直在吹
等了有点久
感觉有点糗
路人看了看我
继续往前走
雨 忽急又忽缓
我有点着急又无奈

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

夜越来越冷,我搓着手
想得到温暖但没有用
甚至开始有点恼火
叹息的时候我抬起头
隐约看希望靠近
忍不住冲进雨里
失望过后的小惊喜
把落魄丢在泥泞
靠着车窗在发呆
视线模糊好舒缓
停了一会,过一站
过了一段,往下一站
温暖 的末班车
除了司机车厢只剩我
慵懒 的哼起歌
这个世界好像只剩我

In the night sky
So many stars
Bright one is you
Dim one is me

In the wilderness
Flowers in the wind
Red one is you
Green one is me

Between heaven and earth
So many landscapes
Blue mountain is you
Small river is me

In life
So much that is ephemeral
Cloud is like you
Cool breeze is like me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Slide down the seat, lean back
I lazily stretch my legs
The uncle across from me
While snoring, widely opens his mouth

Nearby auntie, rocking to and fro
She sleeps soundly in her unsteadiness
The girl next to me, gossiping with a friend about someone's
Scandals

I'm also tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Sorrowful things, difficult things
Here, I don't have the strength to think of them

The city night, above my head
Silently pass through its heart
Even if it's riddled with problems
Still it smiles elegantly and beautifully

I'm already tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Serious things, troublesome things
Here, I can temporarily set them aside

Wait until the stop, get out of the train
The remainder of the trip is still pretty long
Don’t think about it, whatever
Let the breeze blow on my face

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Chinese lyrics

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累

矮下了身子,向后仰
我懒散地伸长了腿
对面的大叔
在鼾声之中张大了嘴

旁边的阿姨,左摇右晃
她睡得找不到北
身边的妹妹 和朋友谈谁
是是非非

我也疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
悲伤的,难过的
在这里我没有力气去想

城市的夜,在头上
沉默经过它的心上
尽管它千疮百孔
仍在夜里笑得冷艳漂亮

我已疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
沉重的,烫手的
在这里都可以暂时放放

等到了站,下了车
余下的路还有好长
不去想,管它呢
让风吹在我脸上

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累

Buskers, go from east to west
In summer on pedestrian bridges, in winter on the subway
Playing a chord, singing popular songs
No one applauds, spare change falls on the ground
Rolls toward legs, bend over to pick up
Every day trying to get three meals, no time to worry about dignity
Use pocket money to buy flatbread, bread is like the moon over my hometown
Hold it with both hands, swallow it whole
Cold day, fingers frozen, cover mouth and blow hot air (on hands)
Don't dare to drink much water, fear the call of nature
Life is like a delicate instrument string, busking is like begging
Be inside the stream of people, can't worry about anything other than the hunger in the stomach
Five grains enter the latrine, all that remains is the hunger in the stomach

卖唱的人,从东走到西
夏天天桥上,冬天地铁里
弹着一个和弦,唱着流行的歌曲
没有人鼓掌,零钱落在地
滑在双脚边,弯腰拾起
日图有三餐,无暇顾尊严
零钱买大饼,饼似家乡月
捧了在手中,囫囵咽下去
天寒手指冻,捂嘴哈热气
不敢多喝水,生怕有内急
命如细琴弦,卖唱如行乞
同在人流中,只为腹中饥
五谷入茅厕,只剩腹中饥

You see it’s been so long and yet no answer, just stop putting on a brave face
Jiajia, let’s both concede to (your) father and mother
I still have freedom, but they only have you

Look Jiajia, you ought to have remembered my drunken words

OK Jiajia, don’t keep opening the wounds on your heart
Hang in there a little longer, very soon it’ll be completely healed

She came to listen to my concert
First love at 17, the very first date
The boy stood in line all night for her
Half a year’s savings, bought a pair of tickets

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
A three year relationship, ended with a single letter
She remembers the horn on the platform urging them towards farewell
Playing my song, crying along with others
Hey, crying with others

She came to listen to my concert
Love at 25, a radiant vision
Boyfriend sent roses to someone else behind her back
She ignores the phone, night after sleepless night listening to music

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
Adults split up and then always act like it’s no big deal
With friends, drink and karaoke
Sing my song and cry along with the image on screen
Hey, cry along

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
At 33, how precious is true love
Young girl begs her to relent
Let the man decide who to fly away with
Hey, who’s flying away to a faraway place

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
She’s trying hard not to look tired
Time hears us singing that we have no complaints and no regrets
To the sound of applause, sing oneself to tears
Hey, sing oneself to tears

She came to listen to my concert
A woman over forty listening to music, very beautiful
The child asks her why she’s crying
The man by her side, long since slipped into slumber
She quietly listens to our concert

她来听我的演唱会
在十七岁的初恋,第一次约会
男孩为了她彻夜排队
半年的积蓄,买了门票一对

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
三年的感情,一封信就要收回
她记得月台汽笛声声在催
播我的歌陪着人们流泪
嘿 陪人们流泪

她来听我的演唱会
在二十五岁恋爱,是风光明媚
男朋友背着她送人玫瑰
她不听电话,夜夜听歌不睡

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
成年人分手后都像无所谓
和朋友一起买醉卡拉OK
唱我的歌陪着画面流泪
嘿 陪着流眼泪

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
在三十三岁真爱那么珍贵
年轻的女孩求她让一让位
让男人决定跟谁远走高飞
嘿 谁在远走高飞

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
她努力不让自己看来很累
岁月在听我们唱无怨无悔
在掌声里唱到自己流泪
嘿 唱到自己流泪

她来听我的演唱会
在四十岁后听歌的女人很美
小孩在问她为什么流泪
身边的男人,早已渐渐入睡
她静静听着 我们的演唱会

One day when I was twenty
I held hands with you and walked to the pedestrian bridge
You only had 5 bucks in your pocket
We ate a bowl of beef noodles

You said any love will change
You said you don’t have any money now
You said thank you for being with me these past several days
You said don’t get duped again in the future

One day when I was thirty
I was walking with him and passed this street
I said I wanted to eat a bowl of beef noodles
He said he didn’t have any change on him

I’ve already forgotten your face
I also don’t have a photo of you
Time has slaughtered all of the past
We don’t really need to reminisce any more

You said any love will change
You said you don’t have any money now
You said thank you for being with me these past several days
You said don’t get duped again in the future

One day when I'm eighty
Could I picture your face again?

我们吃了一碗牛肉面

你说什么爱情都会变
你说你现在也没有钱
你说谢谢我陪你这些天
你说以后不要再被别人骗

三十岁的某一天
我和他路过这条街
我说想吃碗牛肉面
他说他身上没零钱

我已经想不起你的脸
我也没有你的照片
时间它杀死了所有的从前
我们也没必要再去怀念

你说什么爱情都会变
你说你现在也没有钱
你说谢谢我陪你这些天
你说以后不要再被别人骗

八十岁的某一天
我能否再想起你的脸

I dated several types, my elder brother was never satisfied
He thinks I’m a diamond or piece of gold that belongs in a palace
Other people are unqualified

The guy from last time, wore a lot of cologne
Like a hooligan, didn’t care for him
Says he does music
Had both looks and talent
Yeah, really didn’t care for him

I said before when you’re outside you gotta be very careful
Dudes have countless slick maneuvers
You need to believe me
Your brother here is the fighter jet of pickup artists
Oh trust me
I don’t want to believe you
Don’t throw a tantrum
Oh no
You’re sick with love
You’re the one who’s sick
Because I care for you

Hey, where are you?
Ugh, you’re really quite annoying

I say, elder brother, based on your standards
I have no choice but to be alone for hundreds of years
And have no idea if I can successfully become a Taoist immortal
Come quick, come quick, come quick, come quick
This guy is well put together

You have to be really careful of these intellectual-looking guys
Often these are the most dangerous types
You gotta take it from me
Your brother here is the MVP of the intellectual world
Oh trust me
I don’t want to believe you
Don’t throw a tantrum
Oh no
You’re sick with love
You’re the one who’s sick
Because I care for you

Yes or no
The impression I get is (that he’s) super dangerous
Has a familiar air, like what I was like when I was young
Yes or no
Of course can’t judge solely on appearances
Your happiness is what’s important

因为爱你

喂,你在哪呢
哎,你真的很烦哎

我说哥,照你的标准
我只能孤独好几百年
还无法确定是否能够修炼成仙
快来快来快来快来

外表斯文的千万要小心

Watch Beijing opera, play on a swing, kick a stone by the side of the road
Hallway door’s lantern, outdoor market’s soup noodles
Newly-bought clothes, pocket money from lunar new year
Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re talking, talking with others and start flipping through a photo album
Mottled smudges, bits and pieces
How did twenty years pass without us realizing it?

I’ve already cut off my pigtails
Your looks have a bit more weariness to them
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a girl who loves laughing
Still can’t stop myself, your face pops into my mind

Elder sister, I’ve also been fondly remembering
Childhood fruits were so fragrant and sweet
That year when you were married off, I suddenly grew up
Every day hoping, when will I receive your letter?

廊门的灯笼,集市的汤面
新买的衣裳,压岁的零钱
小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人说着说着就翻出了相片
斑驳的污渍啊星星点点
怎不知不觉就过了二十年

我已剪掉我六岁的羊角辫
而你的样子里面也多了些疲倦
如今在远方遇到爱笑的姑娘
仍忍不住 想起你的脸

姐姐,我也一阵阵得想念
幼年时瓜果香甜
我突然懂事在你出嫁的那年
日日盼啊 何时寄来你的信件

Your charm extends out to the Milky Way
You wish you could seduce the whole world
When I’m in the corner and you occasionally think of me
Flirting with girls is righteous

Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Why do you come to burden me?

Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stupid earnestness
Carefully following your every step
Desperately longing earnestness

Your performing skills surpass those of skilled courtesans
I'm a bag of nerves, you're at ease
When my bored-to-death spirit was set aflame

Flirting with girls is righteous
Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Why do you come to punish me?
Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stubbornly pursue this error
Desperately longing stupidity

All my feelings
Rise because of you
Fall because of you
Totally befuddled by you
Follow you here
Follow you there
Waste my time on you

Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why do you come to burden me?

Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stupid earnestness

Title: 去你的撩妹即正义

Chinese lyrics

你的魅力外放到银河系
最好全世界都被你调戏
当我在角落里被你偶然想起
撩妹即正义

既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
干嘛来拖累我

因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
愚蠢的认真
亦步亦趋的
望眼欲穿的认真

春风十里不如你的演技
坐立难安是我,自在是你
当百无聊赖的灵魂再次燃起

撩妹即正义
既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
干嘛来惩罚我
因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
执迷不悟的
望眼欲穿的愚蠢

所有情绪
因你而起
因你而落
因你而不知所措
随你而来
随你而去
为你而蹉跎

干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛来拖累我

因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
愚蠢的认真

Every young lady is a flower
Wherever it blooms, cow poop will be there
Every dude has a phrase
Don’t know whether or not to say it to a girl

Hey girl, where're you off to?
I haven’t finished saying what I want to say
Hey girl, are you going to come back?
When you get back, let’s finish our conversation

So girl, when you’re thirsty do you drink water?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, when you’re hungry do you eat?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl, does your long hair hang over your shoulders?
Me too, this must be fate
Girl, do you like to wear your hair in braids?
Me too, this must be fate

Fate grows wings, it will fly
Without you realizing it, it flies to your side
Fate grows legs, it will run
If you don’t catch him, he’ll be out of sight

So girl, where're you off to?
I haven’t finished saying what I want to say
Hey girl, are you going to come back?
When you get back, let’s finish our conversation

Hey girl, when you’re tired do you sleep?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, when you wake up do you get out of bed?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl, do you like listening to this song?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, do you want another one?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl girl, when you’re thirsty do you drink water?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl girl, when you're hungry do you eat?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl girl, does your long hair hang over your shoulders?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl girl, do you like to wear your hair in braids?
Me too, this must be fate

Chinese lyrics

每个姑娘都是一朵花哎
盛开在哪牛粪就往哪啦呢
每个爷们都有一句话
不知该不该跟姑娘说啊

嘿姑娘,你要去哪啊
我还没说完我要说的话
嘿姑娘,你还回来吗
回来咱们接着把话说完呐

我说姑娘啊,你渴了喝水吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你饿了吃饭吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘啊,你长发披肩吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
姑娘啊,你爱扎小辫儿吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

缘分长着翅膀,它会飞
不知不觉就飞到你身边
缘分长着腿儿啊,它会跑
你不抓住他,他就不见了

我说姑娘,你要去哪啊
我还没说完我要说的话
嘿姑娘,你还回来吗
回来咱们接着把话说完呐

嘿姑娘啊,你困了睡觉吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你醒了起床吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘啊,你爱听这歌吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你要再来一个吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘姑娘,渴了喝水吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧
嘿姑娘姑娘,饿了吃饭吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧

嘿姑娘姑娘,长发披肩吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧
嘿姑娘姑娘,爱扎小辫儿吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧

Darling Orpheus

Please sing a song
You pluck the lyre strings
Mountains and seas are all moved
Mesmerized by your song

Pitiable Orpheus
Please don’t cry
That despicable poisonous snake
Took away Eurydice
You narrate your grief through song

Weary Orpheus
You walked seven days and seven nights
Arrive at the foothills of Mount Tartarus
That god who can resurrect her
I want to use my sincerity to trade

The golden lyre’s light
Shines through the perpetual darkness
You lightly stroke the strings
The wandering souls
Weep sympathetic tears

Darling Orpheus
Don’t forget your promise
Eurydice is just behind you
Feel the warmth of sunlight
How could you possibly lose her again?

Pitiable Orpheus
Your song contains nothing but sorrow
He lost Eurydice forever
All that’s left is ceaseless
Longing for her

Oh my Orpheus
Those who can’t have you
Who can’t hear your song
In rage and disappointment tear you to shreds
Toss you into the sea along with the lyre

Darling Orpheus
Those streets you walked through
Nightingales circling in the air
Listen to her song
Moves you like nothing else
